John Motson’s last match on Saturday

He bows out commentating on our game vs WBA.

Shall we chant “There’s only one John Motson”?

Or will the club do anything to announce it at the game?

The club should play his commentary on the big screen of our 1990 semi final win over Liverpool. It was a thing of beauty - especially the Gray equaliser.

Great commentator but should have gone years ago.

Saw him at a Palace night and he was dreadful.

Hope he gets a shout though

Nice touch.
On radio prior but he came to prominence on motd Hereford united v newcastle united fa cup shock.
Being that was 1972 and was 46 years ago.......46th minute might be appropriate.
And we all stand as one .
If this is to be done and picks up momentum might be good idea to pass onto baggies board or Twitter as I'm sure they would show equal appreciation

Family friend - an absolute gentleman. Never forget him giving me a palace tracksuit top in the early 90s.

Whatever you think of his commentating, I can assure you he knows his stuff.

I think he follows Barnet, might be nice if Palace arranged a presentation by Dougie Freedman on the day.

Seem to remember he got a big reception before our match at Everton this season?

I heard him on Radio 5 Live quite a lot and he certainly knows his stuff.

If it's a draw in the Swans/Soton game tonight, he will be commentating on a pretty important match ! - Possibly not the end of season game they had in mind when they was announced a few weeks ago.

Why should have gone years ago? Commentators now all sound the same, from the school of Tylesley, who sensationalise and are desperately trying to force and say the phrase that will go down in history. I prefer the days of Barry Davis whimsically mocking the precedings, football has become too serious especailly the commentators. I dont need you to tell me every player who receives the ball and what they are doing, I can see that, give me a good anecdote that is partially relevent anyday.

Very boring commentator but having been employed as one for nearly 50 years he must be doing something right.

Hope the club do a small tribute. A gift on the pitch, montage of Palace commentary on the screen etc. He's had a great career and deserves a good send off from us.

I have no idea what makes a good commentator. But his voice is iconic and reminds me of watching football growing up.

Shame he's hanging up the coat, grew up with his commentary along with Moore and Coleman . Time moves on though and I expect he will be writing a few books for us to read so good luck to him . Have a nice retirement motty , you've been a good one .

To me he has the most iconic voice in football. I concur with the sentiment of playing clips from 1990 semI finals before the match.

Ok - maybe I was a little harsh.

His commentating has stood up, his after dinner speech was embarrassing.

Met him in a wine bar a long time ago and he seemed like a nice bloke.
